I can imagine all sorts of uses for Phil Tucker’s motion-detect sprinkler home defense system.

Testing a motion activate sprinkler. A TRENDnet IP camera triggers a GPIO output read by an Arduino which then triggers a relay/solenoid valve to turn on a sprinkler. IP camera already records video and sends email alerts.
